Chelsea midfielder Oscar says the Premier League title is just the beginning for Jose Mourinho’s side as the Blues close in on a first crown since 2010.

A 1-0 victory over Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday saw Chelsea extend their lead at the top of the table to 10 points with just six games remaining.

Wins over Arsenal and Leicester in their next two games will be enough to crown Chelsea champions and, Oscar admits, could start a period of Premier League dominance for the Blues.

“Hopefully yes. This squad is really young and we've been playing together for a long time,” he told Goal.

“We are improving as the time goes by.  This is good for the players and for the club. We know each others’ movements on the pitch. “

Chelsea travel to the Emirates next where they will face an Arsenal side unbeaten in the Premier League since February, and Oscar is expecting a tough test against the Gunners.

“We know we are very close to the title but there are some challenges ahead,” he added.

“If we manage to lift this trophy and keep this level of performances we certainly will do some other good seasons like this one.

"They [Arsenal] have improved a lot. They have won almost every match they played recently. So we know they are a real threat. The good think is we've been doing well and we know that we are up to any challenge."
